I have tried old wines in the past and to be honest it tastes as if they are "rotten", they are more acidic, which really bothered me. Many people like them that way, but to be honest with you the color was darker, the smell stronger and the taste was just soo weird! A mix of burnt with acidic and that was not nice to my taste buds at all. I really think that fresh out of the market bottles are way better and even though I am not a huge fan of wine I would not like to try old wines ever again. I am sure some people love them and might have a different opinion than mine but since I was supposed to answer this question with my honest opinion here it is. So, it is worth for you to try it on your own so you can reach your own conclusions about the taste. Plus there are many different types and brands so things can really vary.
